I posted this blogpost early this morning, on Ocean Lovers Collective’s website. It is a look at the Alchemy of Change.
It has been a darned busy weekend. Work in the office on Art, Writing, Photography. Designing a new optical system for my 5DM2 water housing. In process I also found myself doing a bit of image collection work out along Coast Hwy 1 south of where I live.
The assets of our Coastline and local waters get a lot of pressure placed upon them as the hordes descend, fleeing from hot inland environs and their regular workaday pressures. In a way I have always been fascinated that people flee to the shore. I get it. In fact, as a child, it is what I used to do, as well. It is just that over time I found a way to stay at the beach, and be in, on or underwater at every conceivable moment of every day. I never left.
What that did over decades (yep, I am getting old) is endow me with a baseline view of a lot of the issues involving ocean health, water safety, and a wide range of Ocean related subjects that led to careers related to water. I appreciate that.
So on this Labor Day, well, I am working, but wow, look at my work environment. Thank you for caring about it!
